. the investigations on benghazi and the irs, then it was the still ongoing embarrassing edward snowden leaks that raised questions about how much the president may or may not have known. september it continues with the president's indecision on whether or not to attack syria. he got a tiny bump when everyone was focused on republicans, but now between the government shut down and the bungled health care roll out, he hits the all time low with 42% approving of his job performing. that's getting close to bush territory. he went from 75% in 2002 and at this point in his second presidency was 39% around the time of katrina. democratic pollster. all right, guys. october shock waves is the theme of both of those polls. i went through the president's numbers, fred. for a long time he had just stayed above water when it comes to all of the washington mess. he was at the end of the day seen as somebody at least outside of it a little bit. not anymore. >> you had a shut down that was finished for a purpose and most voters don't know why. you have a health care roll out that doesn't seem to be going we
